A reader alerted Gossips to the fact that the Galvan Initiatives Foundation has a blog. An entry entitled "Initiative to help the Homeless," posted yesterday, responds to the news reported by Gossips and the Register-Star that the HAVE building on Power Avenue is being considered as a possible site for transitional housing. The post defines the foundation's role in the proposed plan--they would acquire and renovate the building and lease it to a service provider--and indicates the population that would be housed there--single, homeless adults.
The blog also provides this information about the foundation: "Founded by T. Eric Galloway and Henry Van Amerigen [sic], the Galvan Initiatives Foundation, Inc. started operation in January 2012. The mission is to promote the quality of life in Hudson by conserving and maintaining buildings of architectural, historic, and social significance. The Foundation will also operate a grant-making program and will provide financial support to charitable organizations operating in Hudson."
